Not too big. Not too small.
Just the right ransom.
In 2018, the infrastructure of a major U.S. city was targeted by a ransomware virus called SamSam. Without the right measures in place for authentication and encryption, the virus spread and the attackers eventually demanded a ransom of $50,000 – enough for a nice payday but still manageable for the victim city.
Smart City Security That Covers Every Angle
Secure vulnerable endpoints – smart meters, switches and sensors – using IoT certificates to authenticate a device, system or network, encrypt all communications and ensure data integrity.
- Certificates for devices validate identities to make sure only authorized users, messages, or other types of servers have access to the device.
- A certificate creates an encrypted link and allows information to be transmitted privately.
- Certificates make sure that any messages or data transferred to and from “things” are not altered.
